Why? Nearly everyone here didn't think he had a problem worthy of 'rehab' anyway.

Never had cognac.

Maybe I will try some new liquors after I run through this course of antibiotics for this damn staph infection.

I can imagine.. This one is far younger, though (as you can probably tell from the bottle).

I got a 1955 armagnac off ebay , which is due to arrive this week. That's more of a collectable though, my taste is not (yet) refined enough to give it the appreciation it deserves.

It's really growing on me, I like it far better than vodka or whisky nowadays. Still learning every day.

I picked up a six pack of these last week. Just finished off my last two in the fridge. Here's what I think.

It's a straw/light golden colour as you would expect and pours with that average mass-produced-force-carbonated head with larger bubbles and dies away fairly quickly. Low hop aroma but I can't make out that distinctive Saaz aroma if this beer is pure Saaz like someone else mentioned.

It's fairly dry but with lower than expected bitterness and definitely too little carbonation for the style. I'd say this is a low carbonated beer, you could tell as soon as you popped the top with a very faint hiss. I'd have to say that there is again, not as much hop flavour as I would have liked compared to German Pilsners. Mind you, the low carbonation probably has something to do with it (yes, it is very low for the style).

Overall, the flavour is not bad. Mouthfeel is a bit lacking again probably due to the low carbonation. There's probably the right amount of sulfates in there because I think I can taste the addition rather than it being in your face. There is that slight bitter aftertaste from the hops as it should be.

Carbonation definitely leaves this one short.

They're 355ml bottles which I don't like and they're twist tops so I like them less. The style, done right, is something to be appreciated. They've mostly nailed the style but the whole carbonation issue leaves this one short.

I can't believe I'm actually doing a review of this!!

Look, this is better than Toohey's/XXXX/VB. Where it sits is with the premium lager sector like Boags Premium, Hahn Premium etc. I'd take their ales any day over this. It's not crap, but it's not great.

BTW: There's no labelling on the bottles or the 6-pack carton saying 100% saaz hops etc so I doubt that is the case. Labelling is totally minimal with just the required barcode and alcohol % around the neck. Embossed into the body of the glass is: "62" which is the only other labelling apart from the whole "Coopers family has been brewing since 4200BC..." etc etc etc) on the carton.

Hop aroma & flavour, carbonation, and mouthfeel leave this one short. For the $16, I'd rather buy a Coopers ale 6-pack for less or get a German Pilsner for not much more.

Jesus Grant, nice review.

Sadly, the review makes me not want to buy it

Well, despite the huge amount of beer in my fridge, we went to a bottle shop again today after our grocery shop (my gf wanted a bottle of white wine). She got some Gunn Estate chardonnay, and it's REALLY good. From NZ, and I think it was only $18.

I accidentally grabbed some Delerium Tremens while I was there too

Yeah it's hard to pass that stuff by, I actually bought all the Deleriums they had in stock at the new 1st Choice Liquor store in Redcliffe.
Another two weeks until they have some more.

Arrived a few weeks ago, wooden box it came in is a bit tattered so I may have to have that seen to to increase value. Bottle is in mint condition anyways.

Still enjoying the Coeur du Cognac, turns out to be a relatively light and fruity cognac. Excellent.

At the moment, a Beaujolais red wine. Pretty forgettable.
